Save Money on TV and Movies With NOW TV Deals
NOW TV is a relatively new company, having been started as a spin-off from satellite specialists Sky TV in 2012. Sky started NOW TV as a way to capitalise on the rising demand for internet-based broadcasting.
Instead of relying on cable or satellite, more and more viewers were using their smartphones to access content. NOW TV stepped in with the right apps and technology to hook up this tide of TV fans with the content they love.
NOW TV has grown rapidly, attracting people who do not yet have a pay for TV service. One of their great strengths has been the wide range of devices customers can use to watch NOW TV services, stretching from ordinary smartphones, laptops and tablets to gaming consoles and smart TVs.
